I don't know if the following quote by Margaret Mead, whom a local Sheepshead Bay school is named after, is verifiable or not but it is hopeful, as is the sight of local blogger Marie's post today at 66Square Feet about the proposed pipeline project involoving Gateway Recreation Area's Jacob Riis and Floyd Bennett Field:
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
I haven't had a lot of hope since first reading about this proposed project, but perhaps I shouldn't give up yet. Thanks Marie. At the very least, more people will hear about the project maybe for the first time through reading your blog. I was speaking yesterday with a frequent Jacob Riis beachgoer who hadn't heard about it yet at all.
Update: The Wave Rockaway's local paper is covering the story. Without an online subscription I haven't been able to read the stories, but it's comforting to know it's being covered.
